Radio 4 interview with Trust CEO Andrew Langford

Posted on: 18th October 2016

The Trust's Chief Executive, Andrew Langford, spoke on the subject of non-alcohol related fatty liver disease on Radio 4’s You and Yours programme.

Speaking frankly about the link between the increase in incidence of fatty liver disease and obesity, Andrew urged practitioners who might be considering screening an overweight patient for Type 2 diabetes to also consider screening for liver disease.

Joined by a supporter of the Trust who required a liver transplant as a result of NAFLD, the two described how diet can cause changes in the liver that can even lead to cancer.
